    @Johnelliott Hi, I'm struggling to find a definitive answer to my questions; I am 5 10" 175lbs and a true medium in most brands but would a large be better for me in the villain hoodie? If so, would I be better getting a large Mercer tank to layer with it or just sticking to TTS (medium) looking to order today so i would be really grateful for a quick reply :) thanks!

    I am the same size, height and etc.I wear a medium, my villain from last season started snug, now the fit is slim and very flattering. Length is perfect for our height. I couldnt imagine sizing up, it would be way too long.

    If I get a chance ill take a pic of the new crew villain I bought and my older hoody villain so you can see where it would start and how it would end.

    Yes please, that would be great! I'm worried about the medium if I'm honest because I have pretty broad shoulders and long arms :-/ so a pic would be really, really useful. Also, wrt the mercer tank, would you size up for the best layering effect?

    Thanks,

    Darren.

    If you check the last few pages you'll find a variety of sizing info and pictures

    I know but it's difficult to tell when someone is your height and like 30lbs lighter?! I mean I'm slim with a 31 inch waist; I really find it hard to believe someone at my height could be like 135lbs. It's impossible to use their pics as a comparison. I appreciate the reply though, thanks!

    I'm 5'8" 175 lbs, athletic lean build (32 waist). I wear a medium in the burgundy villain, grey riga halfzip, and grey u neck tee. The sweatshirts are fitted slim and flattering, which it's supposed to. I would say stick with medium if that's the look you're going for.

    I wore my grey u neck tee today layered underneath the burgundy villain and a black bomber jacket, really nice.

    similar specs here...

    I'm 5'9" 175 lbs, muscular lean build (32 waist) -> XL villain for me, anything smaller would be skin tight in the chest and arms.

    same here, 180cm 80kg, muscular fitness body, went for L in villain pullover but next time will definitely go for XL. L is really slim fit, not too slim but I am sure XL would be better.

    So if anyone is looking for QUILTED VILLAIN CREW size L and don't want to pay extra shipping + duties + taxes I have one for sale.

    Does anyone have a fit pic? I would really appreciate it as I'm ordering from the UK and sizing is vital because a return will not be an option.

    I've had people with similar measurements recommend M, L and XL here ha!

    I was thinking medium but the shoulder measurement 17" seems really small!

    okey, maybe you should go for M, My chests are 22" and shoulders are 19" and L fits me slim, I am definitely going for XL next time. + I have an idea to share shipping costs if in England they are not so strict for paying extra duties + taxes. Let me know.

    I need to take up to date measurements tbh - so you have a fit pic?

    What's the idea?

    Do you have a fit pic? Would be really helpful as you're the closest to my actual measurements?

    I want it slim but not ridiculous!

    Any chance of a fit pic? I plan on layering with the Mercer tank and I'm not sure whether it's worth sizing up one in that too - i like the layering effect on the model's fit.

    I can upload fit pics tomorrow, cause I don't have them yet and I stay at my girlfriend's place tonight. The idea is, that I am also located in Europe but if I order to my country I have to pay a lot for shippng + 22% taxes + 7% duties. We will talk on DM's about that.
